Hi guys i used to make maps for hl1dm in my teenage years and as I have lost my health to be able to work i have too much free time on my hands.
I've been spending some time in level design for hl1dm the past weeks and am wondering if there is a community / servers where I can meet other level designers that share the same passion for creating these rat mazes hl1dm maps are.

I am a 36 year old icelander by the way, i began playing halflife in 1999 and have been playing other games since then but theres just something about the quake / goldsource engine that i love. Simple sometimes is just better, less is more, restrictions in game engines makes you have to be creative when level designing.

Ive been looking at the maps that was submitted to the "bridge the gap" contest, and i have to say just WOW just great maps, good job guys!

There is the TWHL Discord. Also there is LambdaGeneration, and the Hammer community in reddit.

hldm is still popular and there's lots of new maps being made. You should be able to find servers quite easily, also check websites like gametracker.com for servers

Nice to meet you, Frissi! Sorry to hear about your health issues - hope it's not too serious :crowbar:

We have a HLDM server that you're always welcome to test your maps on, and you can usually always find people to play with on the TWHL Discord.
There's a role group called @Multiplayer Crew which can be useful to tag to get a game going.

I too find that Goldsource hasn't lost its appeal. Welcome to TWHL, Frissi!

I just may be the oldest guy here. I turn 50 this year. My son is older than some of you (he's 15).
